Damn that sure did suck big donkey balls. The Sox have now lost six out of the last seven to the perennial 100 game losers known as the Royals. The Walmart Specials have been kicking the $hit out of our Sox recently. Isn’t that about the same time Allard Baird set up camp on Yawkey Way? Joel PineiroBread looks freakin’ awesome, right? BTW…and when did the Royals get fans? Oh yeah, everyone sells out Opening Day, even the Expos back in the day.
Okay, now that I got that off my chest. It is only one game. Hopefully, it is one of the 60 the Sox are likely to lose. One game is nothing to be concerned about, but the way Curt Schilling pitched yesterday is an issue.
When healthy, if the split was on, Schilling would be tough because he always had great command of the fastball. The two swing-and-miss pitches would be enough for him to control the game. But yesterday as if you didn't already know, Schilling did not have his bread and butter – command of the 90+ mph heater and paid the price. He actually walked in a run. This is from a pitcher that had more starts than walks last season. We have no indication that Schilling is hurt so his next start in Texass should be monitored closely.
Schilling can’t fall apart, right?
